SMALL BUSINESS RETREAT FOR WOMEN
September 27-29, 2019 | Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa Vancouver Island, BC
Get ready to grow, connect and be inspired!
Every entrepreneur needs time for self-growth and reflection to be an effective leader. Can't seem to find the time? Then you need a learning vacation! We'll teach you smart ways to grow your business at our exclusive 3-day retreat at the luxurious Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa on Vancouver Island. This is a highly interactive, small-group workshop experience, not a conference.
Sound like this retreat is made for you? It is!
Get personalized, one-on-one instruction from an accomplished professional who has successfully coached hundreds of people just like you, and receive input and support from a group of like-minded women in business who are on the same journey!
You will strengthen your leadership skills by:
- Leveraging your existing leadership strengths. Much like personality, everyone is born with natural preferences in how they lead others. Learn how to build upon your strengths and bolster your areas of weakness.
- Clarify your business purpose and embed it in your culture. Knowing 'why' your business exists and crafting a customer experience that supports it is critically important to growing your business. Learn why we are all in the hospitality business and what changes you need to make to build greater customer loyalty.
- Understanding the key numbers of your business and using them to drive performance. Business is a numbers game. It's not enough to only look at sales and profits.
- Learning how to boost employee productivity. How to motivate your team to act like owners. How to get out of your own way and be more effective - identify and abandon habits that are not serving you or your business.
- De-stress and have fun! Morning yoga, kayaking, paddle boarding, spa treatments, daily cocktail receptions and chilling by the pool. You'll have lots of time to relax and enjoy beautiful Brentwood Bay.
This exclusive retreat is for women entrepreneurs who want to:
- Develop the leadership skills required to grow the business. Everyone has room to grow.
- Build greater customer loyalty. You want to consistently delight your customers to the point that they are your biggest promoters.
- Spend less time in day to day operations. You want the business to be able to function without you for longer. A day, a week, a month? We'll share the roadmap to get you to the next level.
- Better understand key business numbers. You shy away from the numbers for whatever reason and you're not doing forecasts, ratio analysis or monitoring KPIs. We'll get you excited about the numbers.
- Be more confident in difficult situations. Learn techniques to take the stress out of having difficult conversations.
- Be more productive. You want to replace bad habits and practices with ones that will get you better results and improve your work-life integration.
- Engage employees to be more accountable. You want to motivate your employees to be more passionate about the business and to make greater contributions.
- Connect with like-minded entrepreneurs who understand you and your business and want you to succeed.
- Take a guilt-free break (on your company) and indulge in much-needed self-care and luxury.
By the end of the retreat, you will:
- Have incredible clarity of what you need to do differently to improve the profitability of your business.
- Understand the key numbers of your business and how to use them in decision making.
- Know how to implement new, innovative techniques to improve your customer experience.
- Know how to improve your own effectiveness.
- Discover simple yet effective strategies to engage your team to move beyond the 'job' mindset and towards the 'owner' mindset.
- Learn new strategies to solve your current business problems.
- Shift your mindset around your business and success to clear the blocks and beliefs that have been holding you back.
- Feel re-energized, inspired, and relaxed.
- Have a coach and a number of new connections who understand you and your business, want you to succeed, and will be there to support you long after the retreat is over.
